In continuance with its journey of providing a holistic educational environment to students of various disciplines, Techno India Group, Eastern India’s largest education provider, has begun a series of innovative talk shows, named Unwind-Boi Kotha Kow. The concept of Unwind is somewhat similar to The Human Library. The Human Library is an organisation which started a movement in Copenhagen, Denmark, in 2000. It aims to address people’s prejudices by helping them to talk to those they would not normally meet. The organisation uses a library analogy of lending people rather than books.
Unwind will be a monthly talk show with a difference. To be held amidst the familiar settings of Techno India campus, each show will feature a specialist who will answer questions from the moderator and the students present. Unwindwould provide a chance to the students and budding professionals to meet and interact with veterans and specialists of their future professions and learn from them first-hand.
The first chapter of Unwind featured Dr Pradeep Vyas, IFS (Retd), Vigilance Commissioner, State Vigilance Commission, West Bengal &eminent environmentalist and ex- forest official instrumental in introducing many path-breaking strategies during his tenure for wildlife conservation and environmental protection. He was in conversation with Mr Shiladitya Chaudhury, Communication Consultant, Wildlife Photographer & Restaurateur and Prof Manoshi Roychowdhury, Co-Chairperson, Techno India Group.
“At Techno India Group, we constantly endeavour to provide our students with the best of resources to enable a rich learning experience. What could be better than creating an interactive environment through Unwind – Boi Kotha Kow, where their young minds can learn from the masters in different fields over thought provoking sessions. We are honoured to have Dr Pradeep Vyas with us today, as our first guest on Unwind on account of World Tiger Day sharing his rich and varied experiences. We would have renowned personalities from varied fields, every month, to participate in Unwind”, said Prof Manoshi Roychowdhury, Co-Chairperson, Techno India Group.
It was an animated affair with severalyoung minds from Techno India College and University probing Dr Vyas with myriad questions pertaining to the all-important and relevant issues of environment and wildlife management, which he took with as much enthusiasm as them.
